Bobby is just a child, but he has been diagnosed with cancer. His father had to cut back on hours at work in order to take Bobby back and forth to appointments. With less money and high medical bills to pay, they struggled. Bobby felt bad about the hardships caused by his cancer and felt worse that his favorite holiday, Christmas, wouldn’t be celebrated. They couldn’t afford food or rent, much less gifts.
Then a neighbor told Bobby’s dad about Cityteam. When Bobby’s dad came to Cityteam, the staff and volunteers jumped right in to help with a food box for him to take home that day. He also received gifts for Bobby and his sisters to open on Christmas day. The support from Cityteam makes their burden a little lighter and their Christmas such a meaningful and special time.Read More Stories

Every program at Cityteam, from a hot meal to addiction recovery, is only possible because of support from individuals, companies, churches, and schools who care about helping others. You don’t have to be a superhero to make a difference. Here are some ways YOU can get involved.

struggling with hunger.

Our Learning Center allows men in our recovery program to achieve their individual learning goals.
This holiday season, can I encourage you to help us make the holidays really special for those that come to Cityteam Oakland? Together we can give the elderly, the homeless, or the low-income family a chance to find help through meeting real needs and to find hope that only God can provide. These moments can inspire them to change their lives.
We provide so many services (365 days a year) like hot meals, food boxes, warm & safe shelter, and life-saving programs for those lost in addiction and shame.
I invite you to join us this holiday season by volunteering or donating to share the joy of the holidays with those in need.
Wishing you a blessed holiday season.
